When can one book liposuction post a recent lipoabdominoplasty with muscle repair and lipo of the flanks?
Thank you for your photos and congratulations on your surgery. Evaluation on the photos you look very good and you still need more time for healing. For liposuction for other parts you can consider after 6 weeks.
Waiting for Lipo After Abdominoplasty
Regarding timing of the subsequent liposuction, I would want to make sure you have fully healed from the first surgery. Additionally, I would want to make sure as much of the swelling was gone from the previously treated areas to allow for more precise "blending" with the new areas. I recommend waiting at least 6 months, as this would also allow for any touch-up liposuction to be performed in the areas you just treated as well. Of course, your board certified plastic surgeon will be able to provide a more individualized plan after an in-person consultation.
Best of luck!

- You seem to have a very nice tummy tuck result - hope you are pleased.
- You can have liposuction of areas not involved with the tummy tuck no earlier than 6 weeks after a tummy tuck - or longer, if you do not feel fully recovered.
- But to liposuction the flanks - which have had recent liposuction - you need to wait 6 months -
- What looks like fat now may be swelling.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
More liposuction after abdominoplasty
thanks for the question. Your result so far looks really good, hopefully you are happy. If you are looking into liposuction of areas that have not been operated on, or had liposuction, then you should wait at least 6 months for the scarring to mature before attempting liposuction. If we are taking "virgin" areas, then I would recommend waiting AT LEAST 6 weeks not be fully healed from the tummy tuck. You don't want to be laying on your belly in the OR for hours immediately after a tummy tuck when everything is trying to heal.
Hope this helps
